As a NY Giants Fan, I found the comments made by Rob Parker on ESPN's First Take to warrant immediate termination. RG3 is a unique talent and how he conducts his personal life shouldn't be turned into a topic of race. ESPN has no credibility left if Rob Parker keeps his job. Rush Limbaugh was fired for a less blatant racist remark about McNabb years back. This Rob Parker from Detroit called him a "sell out", "Uncle Tom", whatever you call it. If he isn't fired, I say us sports fans boycott this diluted network. Thoughts.

Link or not he said it, its all over the Internet and it reminds me of the Fab 5 hating on Duke because their black basketball players weren't black enough.

Rob Parker isn't some thug reporter known for having a big mouth, he is a respected journalist, or was.

I actually like Rob Parker because he is not afraid to keep it real.

Considering ESPN is the home of former model employees like pedophile Jeremy Green "He is who we thought he was" and Sean "The Flash" Salisbury, nothing is too low for them. Turning a boring show like Cold Pizza into a race baiting show featuring Screamin' A Smith and Skip Bayless, that network has completely lost any of the credibility it had in the 80's and 90's.

Well there wasn't anything real about what he said. What he said was ignorant. RG3 has done nothing to this man for him to call him a "cornball brother". It was unprofessional, ignorant, disrespectful and actually kind of prejudice. He deserves to be fired.

Too bad "keepin' it real" does more harm than good.

I missed the connection between RG3 having a white fiancee and football. Maybe ESPN should stick to sports. They fired Rush Limbaugh for mixing the two.
